Appraiser versus Lender ValuationsWe have an offer that has been accepted on a property. The appraiser issued their report. However, it was immediately flagged by the lender. Their internal review generated a value that was $225k less than the appraisers report. Admittedly, this is a difficult property to appraise since the lots size, house sq ft, and overall status create different opinions. This has happened 2x now with 2 separate Lender/Appraise teams. We are not in a position to bridge this gap with cash. Are there other financing alternatives we can/should pursue? Is there a way to "force" the lender and appraiser to align on a valuation? Thanks!
